Added a 125 Yamaha BWs (Zuma in US), it's a blast to ride !
Last four years I rode my 990 almost every day. vacation, travel, off road trips,...and commuting, but lately I wasn't enjoying being stuck in traffic with the big 990.
I tested other scooters (Gilera 200, Genuine Blur 220, Bws 100 2 stroke,...) and decided on BWs 125 4 stroke: small, nice, great acceleration. Oh, and I already ordered a big bore kit (by "big" I mean 155cc ), high compression piston, cam, clutch, variator, exhaust and big brake kit

My street legal 540 doesn't suck at all. Here she is stripped sown for just dirt mode.

Thumb Negative on suckage (now).

Orange and green go well together here. The 530 EXC is modified for long distance running including intake, exhaust, oil cooler, electronic dash, stator and 28 other modifications. The KLR is a 705 with a Cary Aspy Stage-2 head and over 40 other modifications. My time invested and the parts have price tags, getting them EXACTLY where you want them is priceless! The 990 is an ongoing work in progress. So, very happy with the stable mates.

My mistress shares a stable with my wife, a 1200 GS




I have a terrible confession. Im starting to love my mistress more than my wife


Both good bikes, just designed for different applications. Each has good and bad points.
